  1. Sorry for the delay. The car has now been fitted with a new battery and the illumination is back to normal. The downside is that the !Removed! stop start is reactivated. It’s a witless system. Can it be disabled once and for all?
  2. Good evening. I have a beautiful BRG XF sport brake 2013. I absolutely love the car and it’s in superb condition. However, the alloy wheels are beginning to corrode slightly. My only criticism of the car has always been the the 17inch alloys look, well, a bit small. It’s a premium Luxury spec and I was thinking about changing them to a larger 19 inch second hand set that I have seen for sale. Doubtless the ‘new’ set would require a refresh and a good set of tyres but I am worried about things like tyre pressure monitors, sizes and, well everything really! I am looking at some Caravela wheels which I know were fitted to some sportbrake’s. I believe that my 17’s are: XF 2008 - 2015 X250 17 Inch Alloy Wheel Multi Spokes "LIBRA" (Picture below) and the replacement would be: 19 inch Caravela. is this a mad idea strewn with headaches? Please could I have some sage advice? many thanks, Charles
  3. Dear Marcus. My car seems to think that the battery is low on amps. I plan to change this and reset the system. I am wondering if this will help? Is the car intelligent enough to know that extended use of interior illumination could compromise starting? Who knows. Will report back. Charles.
  4. Good evening, I have an XF sportbrake 2013. It’s superb. However, the interior lights only remain on, when opening the doors in the evening for a few seconds. After a very small amount of time, the car goes totally black. It’s so short that passengers aren’t even inside before ‘blackout’ occurs. Can I change this? I have looked at all the settings but, to no avail. Help?!? with many thanks, charles.
